MN: Milan’s probable XI to face Napoli – Ballo-Toure to replace Hernandez

By Isak Möller -

Stefano Pioli has a few things to decide ahead of the game between AC Milan and Napoli tomorrow. There will be changes to the starting XI, that’s for sure, but there are still some battles that need settling. 

Theo Hernandez has had a fever all week and hasn’t been training with the rest of the team. This means his presence is very uncertain tomorrow, with it leaning towards a no rather than a yes for the time being.

According to MilanNews, Fode Ballo-Toure will most likely replace the Frenchman on the left-hand side of the defence tomorrow. One positive note is that Alessio Romagnoli trained with the team today and should start (some reports of a fever earlier).

Up front, it was first believed that Alexis Saelemaekers would start in the left-wing position but it seems Rade Krunic will get the nod. This also means that Brahim Diaz should start in the No.10 role.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Florenzi, Tomori, Romagnoli, Ballo-Toure; Tonali, Kessie; Messias, Diaz, Krunic; Ibrahimovic.

  1. 56 is benched and Krunic is lined up what a dul Decision is applied by our Coach who never won anything in his Sporting Coachman.
    Look Intermilan They Replayed the coach that won serie A tiltle. It Indicates how Committed their Managers willing to win

  2. Krunic is garbage. He should be the last player to go to the pitch. He offers nothing, wondering to see Pioli’s love for him. He might have Pioli’s video😂

  3. It would be better to use Theo instead of Krunic. I think on attacking wing Theo can become an assist monster. With Krunic we’re toothless.

  4. Assist monster???? What the he goes solo so much and u think he will be so kind to give a pass no chance. He could not handle the ball when hes defending what will he handle against defenders. He gets tackled by attackers. We keep kalulu in his position idk why my guy pioli thinks about ballo toure in these games. UHHHHHHHHHHHHH
